Goings-on in the South and beyond

A Reel Good Time
Lafayette, Louisiana
January 21-25

Cajun country doesn’t exactly lack for local color. A stew of French, Spanish, and African influences, the area has a bons temps spirit that makes it an ideal spot for an international film festival. Especially one charged with exposing attendees to the most original voices in film while fostering cultural exchange among the French-speaking peoples of the world. Organizers behind Cinema on the Bayou (January 21–25), now in its tenth year, will host filmmakers from as far afield as Canada and France, plus their U.S.-based brethren hailing from New Orleans to New York. And whether you’re fluent en français or grateful for subtitles, the four days of screenings are an introduction to Cajun and Creole culture worth much more than the price of admission.  —cinemaonthebayou.com
